Good news, under the circumstances.. well done.
Glad to hear he's safely in Freo, he'll get a warm welcome in that sailor's haven, for sure...Glenn is 20 miles out of Fremantle as I type this. A few hours at most now.
As far as the rigging, Glenn apparently did not renew the shrouds and stays before he left, although I understand he was advised to by Brent.
Damn, that's sad news... To me, sadder even than being forced to abandon his voyage, actually...Glenn's boat is for sale in Western Australia. Good boat for anyone who wishes to sail offshore. The rigging has been replaced.

Ditto that. Maybe he was running low on funds.Given the extent of the refit he did, however, and the extreme difficulty of the voyage he was attempting, that decision not to go with new standing rigging is a bit of a head-scratcher, for sure...
